Re: ranger 4.0 swapped into a 05+ 4.0 mustang?
way to much money...in parts and labor..it was just a money pit...
partially because i had to bore/hone the block twice because i did it backwards..honed it for the pistons i didnt have, and then bought the pistons..so that was like 350$ that i didnt have to spend...
boring/honing....700 (done twice, thats why)
SSM 9.4:1 pistons....750
pocket ported heads....350
42 lbs injectors....260 (ebay way back when)
lightning m112/plenum....550 (ebay way back when)
homemade intake plenum (uhhh 50 bucks in metal..15 hours in labor? trial and error..)
jba headers...400 i think?
lightning MAF...200 i think?
3 angle? valve job...no idea, 200?
centerforce clutch....400.....and i bought a spec for 500$ at first and it SUCKED
new chain guides/cam sprockets...400
and then beyond that there are a bunch of other things...SCT tuner, walbro 255 fuel pump (might be 190, not sure), 4 autometer gauges, smaller pulley....ect
when i say way to much money, i mean way to much money...something probably around 10,000$ for the truck as it sits right now...kind of why i want to put it in a mustang, because it will be more able to use the engine..(i tow a trailer with a lawn mower now) but i could do that with the 4.0...
would i do it again? no...if i had to though, i could do it for alot cheaper now that i know what it takes..
